My two friends, Marcia and Ruth, and I have been cleaning out our vintage needlework books and want to find good homes for these treasures. Do you have a place on your book shelf for a lovely needlework book? I am posting a list here of some of our combined books and magazines. Prices are so low on Amazon that over 40 of our book titles are not worth packing up and sending to you by themselves. We will donate these to the local AAUW (American Association of University Women) book sale for their scholarship fund.
How to price the books? Some are brand new. Others have barely been opened. During the summer we went to Amazon.com and checked out prices so our prices include a $3.99 shipping cost. If you are interested in purchasing any, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org soI can send you a .pdf with the titles, prices, descriptions, etc. We will not sell books listed for under $10 individually, but you can combine them with another more expensive book.
We will send them via USPS media mail which does not take as long as it used to years ago.
I do take PayPal and would send you an invoice through them. That is easiest. You do not have to have an account with PayPal to use them. Any questions, please write.

I have been busy this last year with quilting and stitching and family. Am still watching my 2 youngest grandchildren who are now 18 mos. and 3 years old. I keep them on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the school year. I'm currently working on several needlepoint ornaments that I hope to finish before the Holidays.
This past summer has been one of cleaning out the house where we have lived since 1978. I am trying to be ruthless and have taken several car loads of stuff in my Prius to a local charity. It's amazing how much that little car can hold. I did have a garage sale in July, but it wasn't as successful as I had hoped.
My oldest daughter moved back home last May while she is in the process of pursuing a nursing degree, and I have moved the "computer room" to two different locations while we all get settled. I am currently trying to figure out where I put my unused checks. I hid them so well that I can't remember where I put them.
Will try to take some pics of the ornaments that I have been stitching during the last few months. Unfortunately no samplers in the "works in progress" pile...Am trying to finish those projects I think will take the least time so I can get them off my "to do" list. That's the list that never ends. Hope you can find a book you would like to have.
